Celebrate the Nation with Scribbles Designs

Coffee of the Day - Eggnog (found an un-opened bag in the back of the cabinet. major score!)

Happy Monday! yeah I know. I giggled when I typed it. those two don't normally go together, do they? but each day is what we choose to make it, so I am deciding this Monday is gonna be FULL of happy! are ya with me?

for those of you who are curious, here is the way I voted on the UK tv poll last week. remember, these were difficult for me. being the nerdy geek I am, they put me in a very difficult position of having to choose btwn not just favorites, but shows that are deal breakers in our family. not cricket!
Big Bang vs. The Walking Dead = The Walking Dead
explanation - decided to compare current seasons. Raj's girlfriend (ick!) was the tie breaker
David Tennant vs. Matt Smith = David Tennant
explanation - both are amazing Doctors. both bring their own unique quality to the role (ahem...regeneration!) so I had to go on overall acting quality. plus I just flat out love The Dr. and Rose. but then there's The Dr. and River.... sigh......

alright, geek moment is over. onto crafty.....
Today begins a new challenge over at Scribbles Designs, and since I am the permanent Guest Designer, I have a card to show you! :) Our new challenge is 'Celebrate the Nation' by using the colors of your country in a papercraft project. I also took this a step further and made a card to actually celebrate the USA! stop by the challenge blog to pick up a great free image from Sandy as well as to see the great inspiration from the team!

I thought what better way to celebrate our wonderful country than with a chorus line of dancing sheep! no really, don't these guys just make ya smile?!?! I love this image! David quickly grabbed this card to take to someone out at Camp. He was laughing the entire time he was looking at it. I HOPE it was because of the dancing sheep chorus line! eek! anyhow, I gave the sheep on each end a fancy star wand/sparkler. as if their positions weren't tough enough. back in high school, I was on the Drill Team. for some reason I was always placed on the ends when we had short lines. this is the hardest position. so applaud those sheep who can dance AND shake their sparklers high in the sky! woo hooo!

Papers are Authentique Pride, gorgeous flower is Prima, senti circle is Create with TLC, buttons and stitched ribbon are from my stash. added a ticket and air mail envelope for some extra patriotic fun. the party journaling card was a freebie I found on the internet. I'll link it as soon as I trace back where I found it. (now linked). the little star sparklers are painted in shimmerz.

Well I hope you have a most amazing week! still feel horrid, but trying to get some 'absolutely have to' projects done. crafting always helps me feel happy!
sending all of you big hugs! Jennifer

Ali said...

Great card. And I'd have picked David Tennant too. They are both awesome Doctors but 11th doesn't quite grab me the way 10th did. :)

Thanks for joining in with the Use a Digi challenge at OSAAT this week and good luck!

Charlene Mitchell said...

Jennifer, you are an inspiration! Love your dancing sheep and the addition of the wands. Also had to comment because your coffee of the day is eggnog (I LOVE it - what a score to find it in July!!!)

Part 2: Next up, I had been wondering whether you guys had friends in the states because you had made a 4th of July card and I thought that interesting since you were from England. Well apparently in my head you are from England. I have no idea where that came from but imagine my surprise when I read that David was taking the card to someone at camp. HuH? That is a long way to go to camp. So, proceed to me clicking on your profile and finding out you live in Ohio. Little ways from Jolly Old England. Anyways, you did a phenomenal job on your card. I love how you gave the sheep the star wand/sparklers. Those sheep deserve a high five which will be difficult at the moment considering they have no hands/paws/feet(?) available.
